Nicki Minaj Video Star

Demoted After Tweet

A guy who appears in an upcoming Nicki Minaj video claims he was demoted from the lead role to a face in the background ... all for revealing top secret information about the project on Twitter.

The guy with the six-pack is Toyin Koyejo -- who claimed via Twitter he was punished for tweeting the title of the song featured in the music video. Apparently, Minaj had intended to keep it a secret.

Sources connected to the shoot tell us Toyin was approached by a furious crew member who claims the tweet was a direct violation of his confidentiality agreement ... and Toyin was almost fired on the spot.

However, we're told Toyin apologized to the powers that be ... and they let him stay on the project ... but in a less prominent role as a featured extra.

Well we know it didn't teach him a lesson since he fed you this story. If you paid him more than he made on the video I guess its worth it if this story doesn't cause him to get blacklisted. Dummy.

Like her or not, dude was hired for a job and went against the terms he was hired under. Even is Nicki kept him, good luck getting a job with any other artist (especially after publicizing the story like he's the victim)
